Ask Your Mama (Poetry By Langston Hughes)
Langston Hughes’ most defiant work moves from Africa to America, from outrage to joy and from childhood to manhood across one epic 12-part poem. In the margins, Hughes suggested hot jazz, German lieder, cha-cha and other types of music for his intended interdisciplinary creation. Now, his complete piece gets its first full musical setting; composer Laura Karpman teams with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, Questlove of the Roots and an array of sopranos, jazz singers and hip-hop artists as you hear Dedication; Gospel Cha-Cha; Ask Your Mama; Bird in Orbit, and the rest of the acclaimed production that made waves at Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater, the Hollywood Bowl and more! Avie.
